The phoenix is one of the most symbolic and powerful animals in mythology. Being reborn from your ashes represents overcoming adversity.
Today's project was meant to be a page of my art journal but, instead of “journaling”, I have framed the paper.
I hope you enjoy it.
On the watercolour paper, stencil flames using yellow and red markal paint.
Cut the flames separately.
Draw a phoenix and colour the inside using the black marker.
Mask the phoenix and place the mandala stencil over it.
Use red and yellow paint to stencil the mandala.
Stick the flames overlapping them.
